Dear Coachella-goers, we know this is the most important information for your Coachella weekend, so stop fronting like you care more about the set times. Most of you are only going for the parties anyway, right? Right. Cool. We'll see you there, er, we'll be there, we won't necessarily see you though because our eyes may be under-performing...

Well, most of them, some we can't really talk about and you probably already know about them anyway.
